Introducing Arjun Petal…….
Welcome to the Shooting Stars talent agency where Arjun Petal can make anyone a star… or at the very least that’s what he tells the prospective client.
Arjun is a con man, his con is the age old vanity press scam.
It works like this. He meets a client with low self esteem and dreams of stardom in his modelling agency and he relieves them of all their surplus cash.. he gets his fees and then he makes them feel so bad about themselves that they cannot continue with his program. His fees are non-refundable.
What can go wrong? Eh? Well.. things are not going to plan for Arjun. Maybe it’s the ghost who haunts his building or Irina, his latest client, who seems to be able to see the ghost or maybe, just maybe ..
It’s something to do with Eve, the mysterious lady who shows up at his door and gets angry…
